Brittany and the Cote dEmeraude is a popular destination for families. Miles of sandy beaches and a spectacular array of granite cliffs, brooding coastal fortresses and bustling resort towns draw in millions of tourists every year. Dinard, a short drive from St Malo, is one of the most attractive family resorts along this stretch of coastline.
Arrive in Dinard and it will feel as though you have been catapulted back into the 19th century. Luxurious seafront Victorian villas and stripy beach tents all add to the up-market resort atmosphere, which is hardly surprising when you learn that Dinard was the top place to holiday before the French Rivera overtook it in the popularity stakes.
Thrifty Dinard visitors will be more than happy with the free activities on offer, but those with money to burn can throw away some Euros in the casino or have a few spa treatments in town. Or, if you prefer, enjoy a few games of golf at nearby St Briac sur Mer, a world famous golf course.
Spend your time chilling out in Dinard or head down the coast to discover nearby towns such as Saint-Malo and the impressive Le Cap Frehel. The laid-back atmosphere of this coastal region is somewhat infectious and makes for a rejuvenating getaway.More about Dinard Airport
